What is the easiest way to get a combo box (in MFC) to change the colour of certain items in a combo box. For example, suppose there are three items in the combo: A, B and C. I want A to be red, B to be green and C to be blue. I may also want to change these colours at runtime.

What is the best way to do this?

Thanks in advance
